Misc. Comments

  • Grove Music lists this as "Ludovicus Pius, oder Ludewig der Fromme (op, 3, C.E. Simonetti), Feb 1726, incl. some arias by C.H. Graun, ballet music partly from ops by Destouches and A. Campra, Bsommer; partial edn. in PÄMw, xvii (1890)". In other words, it is not entirely by Schürmann.
  • Instrumentation taken from RISM / Ludovicus Pius
